when we got together everything was great and then we got into our first argument and things haven't been the same since. He slowly started to open up and let me understand a little bit of what is going on but then we got in a fight over unrelated topics and then he shut me out. Now its fights all the time and I wanting to break up but then ask not too. I don't want to leave and he say and act like he want me to stay but the fights are getting out of hand. I just want to help him get on the right track with this illness but now, days that its brought up, even when they bring it up, it becomes a fight (I want him to be the amazing lovable person again. The person who would go to war with me not against me) I'm not allowed to ask about what he is going through or what thinking or what the voices say not even if it has anything to do with me. He tell me that the voices wont let him be happy the voices have become controlling and now my relationship is hanging on by a string. I have fought way to hard for us, this relationship, and for him. I love him and don't want to loose him please any advice would help

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
In the details given above you haven’t mentioned anything about his medication routine or compliance. Is he even compliant with his medicines and doses? Why are the symptoms becoming stronger? When was his last appointment with the doctor he’s seeing for his treatment. You’re trying hard and you shouldn’t give up but along with that you have to make sure that he’s taking his medicines (corrected/recommended doses on time and with regularity) also make an appointment with his doctor and take him over for a little session of counselling that will help a lot.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
